Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2012
On tap. Clear dark amber with a dense off-white head. Dry nutty aroma. Medium body, some initial caramel notes quickly suppressed by a distinct and somewhat rough bitterness. Absolutely clean and well made but the hop profile is a bit unrefined to my liking. 100312

jonno (2616) - JAPAN - MAR 18, 2012
Bottle. Moderately rye spice and citrus nose. Dark pour with the great SN head. Not too full on, spicy, toffee and a average bitter finish. Solid creamy mouthfeel. Very MOR. SN remind me of the Foo Fighters. Solid, dependable - everyone likes them. They rock hard and are tight as s#$%. But they are a tad boring and samey all the same.

jlruthven (609) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Draft at the Mason. Pours dark, hazy amber with one-finger tan head. Very frothy, good retention. Big spicy hops on the nose, mild pine and orange. Grapefruit, massive spicy rye on the tongue, mouth-puckering hop kick. Pretty great.

jsmerig (1523) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Aroma of spicy grain. Pours a copper brown with minimal head. Taste is malt forward with an immediate spicy hop turn. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Thx matt. Poured amber color with huge foamy head. Floral hop aroma and spice grain. Medium bitterness, creamy texture. Big bitter finish. Medium body. This is full of flavor with big hop floral and malt brain body.

A - pours clear amber with high white head. S - aromas of piney citrus hops up front. Hints of dough and rye. Piney/citrus hops dominate. M - creamy mf with ave carb. Lingering bitter rye hops. T - fruity citrus hops up front. Caramel malts, apricots, rye. On the palate. Lingering bitter hops, vegetal, and rye on the end. Citus/pine hops dominate. O - the rye is not noticeable through the overstated hops. 6+

Tycho52 (65) - California, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Had a copper hue with a nice white head. Aroma of hops and toastiness, and tasted the same. I didnt notice a taste of rye (especially not a pepper taste as stated on the bottle). Then again, Im not sure what the essence of rye is unless thats what I taste when I have a pastrami sandwich. It was a likeable beer, and Ive since bought some more.

Pours a clear copper hue with a white 2-finger head that quickly dissipates. Hoppy aroma with hints of lemon and pine in the background. Strong hoppy bitter flavor with acrisp rye background. Finishes on the dry side of bitter. Medium body.

Bottle. (Tasting note- enjoyed this with spicy food.) Reddish amber with think white head dissipating quickly. Smells mostly piney/resiny and to a lesser degree grapefruity/perfumey. Flavor follows. Nice dry finish.
